Earlier this year Hanson won his fourth PNGA Men’s Master-40 Amateur title.
O’Donnell is the reigning PNGA Senior Men’s Player of the Year.
In the Men’s Super Senior Team Championship Daniels and Jonson combined for a 7-under 65 to grab a three-shot lead over Ben Manchion and Tom Kubisa, both of Bremerton, Wash., and Alan Defoe of Calgary, Alta. and Ron Bell of Vancouver, BC.
